  3. A beautiful service. A sad, sad day, but a heart-warming coming together of family and friends both here in Oz and in Kiwiland to remember Eddie. And I’m sure we were all touched by the Haka, a fitting tribute to him.

    A special thanks to the men and women who performed it.

  4. Such a short time I’ve known you Eddie but what a privilege it’s been to call you a friend.
    A true gentleman, a family man, you loved your kids, dogs and bikes but most of all you loved life to the max.
    Taken from all family and friends far too soon
    My heartfelt condolences to Ness, James, Ella and all family at this sad time.

    Ride in Peace Eddie
